    Of course. If that wasn't the case, I'd wonder who kidnapped you.

    And who stole all the beer.

    That is WAAAAAAAAAAAAAY too accurate.

    I do love me some Portillo's - and it is literally 5 minutes away.

    So, I spent the last several minutes perusing the Portillo’s menu.

    I need to ask, how does one eat the dipped beef? Fork and knife? From the hands? I’m intrigued.

    I grab it

    Sweet and hot peppers , dipped and soggy, it is sensual and you might wear some of it but it’s worth it

    If you did it over Christmas break, doesn’t that mean it’s yours and not the companies?

    Nice.
    I've had that, courtesy of @bl00 back in 2018 (BIF#11?). For a while, some Prairie beers were making it to the unseasonably snowy springtime wilds of Spokanistan, but never that one.

    I still used company equipment to do it, and I did it because it sounded fun, not because I wanted to get paid for it. :nerd:

    When the streams cross like that, bad things happen! At least according to Bill Murray and Harold Ramis.

    I'm starting to think that it means investing in our beer drinking may be a better ROI than investing in the S&P 500

    Damn, I leave my phone at home while I'm gone for a measly 14hrs and y'all go apeshit.
    Actually, now that I think about it, it appears to be a typical 14hrs for this BIF.

    Sandwiches are hand food. You use a knife and fork for wings or pizza?

    Quickly.

    Like someone is trying to steal it from you.

    If I pulled out a fork and knife to eat a dipped beef, Joy would punch me.

    In the nutz.

    She’s a keeper.

    Even when she tries to tell me that Summit EPA, their iconic flagship beer from the Upper Midwest, “tastes like Beck’s.”

    That’s just uncivilized.

    Success!

    Full credit given to @Roguer for the boxing instructions! I was a little nervous with the new pack method and since the trip wasn’t exactly short, very glad to hear everybody made it unscathed. Been pretty much exclusively using UPS of late, but USPS did full cross-country four days faster and at about half the cost as UPS Ground, so pretty stoked about that too. This will provide valuable savings in the future which of course may then be reinvested in more beer!

    It’s looking like the next set will arrive after share day, so wanted to make sure you got this batch in time - enjoy the Southern ticks! (as opposed to mites and lice, which are also available here)

    Do we need to all chip in to get you a Best Buy Geek Squad gift certificate so they can come fix your computer so you can post / see pictures?

    Well done @Mbgreg. I've been on the receiving end of your boxes before and can easily picture what this looked like, even without the actual photo evidence!

    Yup, I'm a solid believer in USPS for their flat rate boxes. Ive got a few 750s to mail out so those will go UPS, but everything else is USPS
